Why All-Star Games Suck

Why All-Star Games Suck - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

What do you think of All-Star games? A great way to see the stars or a total waste of time? Take Kidzworld's online poll and let us know what you think.

All-Star games are supposed to showcase the best a sport has to offer. They're supposed to give fans a chance to see their favorite superstars play together at the same time and players a chance to show who's the hardest hitter, the fastest pitcher or the best dunker.

But lately, all-star games have been all-garbage, all-boring and altogether a waste of time. They're about as exciting to watch as a documentary on the history of lint. The so-called all-stars usually play with as much energy as a sloth on morphine and the games are nothing like the games during the regular season or playoffs.

No Hitting, No Winners and No-Shows

The NHL All-Star Game might as well be a figure skating competition. The players never hit, fight or play defense. The 2002 All-Star Game in baseball ended in a tie after 11 innings because the players were too tired. The NBA's All-Star weekend used to be worth watching because of the Slam-Dunk Contest. But, even that kinda bites now because none of the top dunkers, like Vince or Kobe, ever show up. So, why even bother having All-Star games? Just cancel them and start the playoffs earlier - because that's where the real excitement is, anyway.

1I used to love all-star games. Now they all-suck! I'm a huge sports fanatic and I expect better. Normal exhibition games are better. Sheesh!

1 Exhibition games are better because the fact that it can be a rivalry or a good game. Well this year's NFL All-Star game was a really close one. That's what all fans want, right?

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.
